Advisor-Centric Firm Delivers Satisfaction

Advisor-Centric Firm Delivers Satisfaction An emphasis on a positive company culture and strong client relationships put 1847Financial at the top of its field. When Penn Mutual CEO Eileen McDonnell reached out to former colleague Jim Meehan in 2011 and asked if he’d be interested in taking on the challenge of turning around the company’s worst-performing financial services firm, he said he would—with one caveat. “I wanted to do it my way,” says the now managing partner of Philadelphia’s 1847Financial. “I wanted to pursue a nontraditional and advisor-centric structure in which team members partner together to help [...]

Plan Ahead for the Financial Stages of Life

President Lincoln once said, “If I had six days to chop down a tree, I’d spend five of them sharpening my axe.” Sometimes, planning for an event can take longer than the event itself.

Many people put off financial planning, especially during uncertain economic times, because they either don’t know where to begin or they don’t think they have enough money to make it worthwhile. The truth is there is never an ideal time or place to begin, and there is no specific level of income or assets [...]

Here are three reasons why this is one of the best ways to set up your child for the distant future and why they will thank you for it later. 1. It’s extremely affordable. It’s so affordable that both policies will be completely paid [...]

What is Special Needs Planning?

I often get asked the question, “How is special needs planning different than traditional financial planning?” The main planning goal of the parents typically does a 180 compared to most parents – these parents are concerned about living one day longer than their child. Making sure quality of life and lifetime care is there for their child (most times, their adult child) with special needs is of the utmost importance here. They are planning a “3-person retirement” – lifetime income for Mom & Dad but also a lifetime of income to support their child. With this paradigm shift of clients’ goals, we need to [...]

Where Will Bitcoin be 1 Year from Now?

An accurate estimate of where the value of Bitcoin will be a year would be difficult, but one thing is fairly certain; Bitcoin is not going anywhere. Before discussing Bitcoin as a currency, it is critical to first define what currency is: Currency (noun): 1. Money in any form when in actual use as a medium of exchange. 2. Transmission from person to person as a medium of exchange. Money (noun): Any clearly identifiable object of value that is generally accepted as a payment for goods, services or repayment of debts.  Throughout history, there have been many forms of currency.  Gold and [...]
